This concept of upgrading the information infrastructure of the social sector is the result of years of informal conversations now broadened and coalescing into a specific imperative to improve the way we generate, use, and share data, i.e. the “plumbing” of the sector. If, together, we can improve the stocks, flows, and mechanisms that determine the data we use and how we use it, then we can better deliver the “good” that we propose. Further we can optimize investment, ensuring a greater flow of funding to scaling what works. There’s a lot of good work already in process: Markets For Good seeks to connect, align and accelerate these efforts.
